Several developments have occurred in the case by Plaintiff Brian Williams and the people of California alleging insurance fraud against Safelite Group Inc. (SGI), Safelite Fulfillment Inc. (SFI), and Safelite Solutions Inc. (SSI). The suit, which Williams filed late last year, accuses the three entities of fraud for using less expensive mouldings than they charged the insurers for and charging for sanitation wipes that were either unused or not used in the quantity the insurers were billed.
The most significant was the order by the judge designating the suit as a complex case. Complex cases require “ exceptional judicial management to avoid burdening the Court, and the litigation is exempted from California’s fast-track trial rule. Many class action suits are considered complex.
A trial-setting conference is now scheduled for December 6, 2023. The initial case management conference has been continued to January 18, 2024 as the Court said the Plaintiff failed to file proof of service of summons and complaints on all the Defendants.
